A multinational team of nine ZL DXers activated Chatham Island in the South Pacific from March 5th to 10th 2009. ZL7T was QRV on CW, SSB, RTTY and PSK on all HF bands bar 12m, making 10,580 QSOs and spreading a little happiness.
Read comments from ecstatic DXers on the feedback page.
Enjoy the feature article on the ZL7T DXpedition in several major radio magazines including Break In (May/June) and QST (August).
We received appreciative comments on our advice for ZL7T callers. The hints for breaking through the pileups still stands: it will hopefully improve your chances with current and forthcoming Pacific DXpeditions to exotic places like Conway Reef, Midway, Fiji, Tuvalu and Kiribati and Nauru.
We have now completed the log-checking and uploaded the final ZL7T log to Logbook of The World. Congratulations to all of you who made it into the log and commiserations to those who didn’t: it was such fun that we would like to make a return trip so watch this space. The corrected ZL7T log is also available to search online and we have done some basic statistical analysis.
Thank you everyone who has already donated towards this DXpedition, both individually and through your clubs. Further donations and extra banknotes slipped in with your QSL cards will be much appreciated by our bank managers.
